set of leaders. >> host: president obama's relationship with the health care bill and the debt ceiling, i think it is many people find that extraordinarily detrimental to his success. >> guest: the debt reduction, one of the great antidote between harry reid on obama and nancy pelosi -- obama is going on at some length. nancy pelosi leans over and hit the button and starts a conversation with harry reid. that illustrates everything. it illustrates a lack of trust that simply isn't there. they see him as an empty seat. he hasn't been able to deliver on anything. conservatives tend to think that they see obama as an evil genius, which i think he is an ordinary man trying to make things the best that he can. but progressives are deeply disappointed in them. they had a much bigger agenda. they needed a personality like an lbj to make that happen. hillary might have had a personality. she probably does, actually. this is someone who is solitary and bookish and those are adjectives that describe him is unlikely to retreat to a private office in the white house. his own staff doesn't know how
think that that is expensive to collect the data and analyze it and it is expensive of the obama campaign has done the bill in the in-house data analytics with dozens of people many of whom are working on the private sector jobs that pay good money before. but i think that the campaign manager will tell you that will allow them to get smarter and what we will find your model and predictions and protections and in the end it pays for itself. >> host: i think we are going to take a break now and then we will be right back. >> host: i think microtargeting, everybody that has heard the phrase can you just explained to everybody what is microtargeting exactly and how was it used in these caaigns? >> guest: there are two types of command occasions. there is the mass media with the candidate talking and running its source in the newspaper, and then for the last half century it's been the tv ads and radio ads. those are very targeted in the certain media market or the certain time of day or certain channels, but you can't do a lot more sort of specificity than that. the other type of com
channel 24/7 to to talk endlessly, but i think bill clinton will work his heart out for president obama, travel extensively as well as mrs. clinton even if she's not the nominee because they are playing a long game, and she'll run for president in 2016, and whether or not obama wins, she's going to do that, and in the easiest way to garner chips is to be a good soldier, and mitt romney is a good example who losing in 2008, turned around and did everything to get john mccain legislated which mattered to senator mccain and his supporters, and you'll see the same with bill clinton and mrs. clinton. they will be aggressive in supporting president obama. to no avail, but very aggressive. >> we have time for two more. >> you mentioned a potential national emergency. do you think something's happening with israel and attacking iran in the next few months? >> i don't know that something would happen. i believe that if it does, it will redown the benefit of president obama and my best evidence for that is 1962, jack kennedy, of course, was president, was not running for reelection, but was getti
. on twitter, they ask what are the differences or similarities between obama's health care bill and romney's health care big. give us a big similarity and a big difference. >> guest: okay. the romney bill, the massachusetts health reform said we need to expand access to care by making everybody have health insurance. once that's in place, then we'll start talking about the costs of health care. the discussion came up because there's a theory out there that health care costs is a two-headed beast. you've got this enormous and growing health care industry, and costs are rising, people are living longer. the -- the care that we get now is just really expensive to buy mri machines and all of the other things that, you know, you expect when you go with a headache, you want somebody to do a scan of your brain instead of just telling you to take two aspirins. there's this massive increase in health care costs. it's eating up more and more of our government's budget. at the same time, there's a agreeing number of people who are uninsured who -- it could be one in the same. they can't afford the in
past, whether it was president obama talking about renegotiating nafta during his campaign, or wasn't to be. bill clinton butchers of beijing. he ends up forging a pretty strong relationship with china. so i think you have to discount a lot of the rhetoric and a lot of what you hear about, about priorities at this point. and probably conclude that when they do get in office that the harold macmillan words will probably drive things more than anything else. and that's defense, my dear boy, events. and then we get back to what you are saying. what will be their management style? what will be their ability a stunt history to respond to those events as they arise. spoonbill, what leadership is have you picked up? >> i think we have an incumbent president so presumably we know how he will be inclined to cover but i suppose one could argue that maybe not becoming, obama took over and over nine in a very unusual circumstance, huge majority in both houses, wind at his back but also apparently failed administration, huge financial crisis. he did various things we could second guess them or n
she was a serious contender for price president pro when she endorsed obama that also moved up her stock. she was one of the last three or four people obama was considering. there were things against her. she is not an exciting speaker. it was not a bill clinton's speech. very measured. levying off of the teleprompter. saw lead information off the cuff she is different. she is savaged with the press and i actually brought up clip of jonge to work -- jon stewart on "the daily show" lampooning the speech she gave in response to the president bush "state of the union." it was not well done. jon stewart had a great time. from the communication perspective she is not that inspirational. and that is a lot of what was written she will not bring a lot. she did not have foreign policy experience. she said that made the difference with joe biden was born policy and she agreed it was essential. but now she is a cabinet secretary and knows where that will take her? >> the third is senator made the castle on. >> and was four several reasons. the first woman elected to the senate in her own righ
primary priority was defeating barack obama in 2012. it is readily understandable why he does not wish to emulate senator kennedy and thus enable obama's reelection. one could easily say newt gingrich made a mighty contribution to reelecting bill clinton. in 1996 by giving him a welfare bill that he was surprised to discover that clinton would sign. it may be the weakness of the candidacy would have doomed to regardless but in many ways the election was over. that kennedy embrace so-called welfare reform and republican legislation that was passed. what we learned in american politics was americans fixate on the president and blame warm praise the president for what ever happens. congress gets very little credit or more to the point of a presidential candidate of the opposition congress that works well with a president gets very little credit for their good sportsmanship. what they do is to re-elect the incumbent president. one cannot blame mitch mcconnell for does siring not to re-elect a democratic president. what one can blame is the flavors in 1787 and others to fail to recognize th
to including bill clinton obviously who took military action in kosovo in that case without a u.n. security council mandate and, barack obama ran and says repeatedly that he does not consider the united states bound by to pursue its interests bound by u.n. security council resolutions. merge has i would say am by lept attitude toward international law. we are in some respects the greatest spokesman sometimes for international law but throughout our history and throughout the cold war and even from the fact that we founded the united nations we have been, among the most persistent ignorers of international law at the same time. so you know, it's always this, and partly because we have this exceptional view that the laws are right for everybody but they're not always right for us because we have a special role to play in the world. >> is it serially bad thing that is damaging to our status and credibility in the international community? >> well, it seems to me if you tried to say it in one sentence what the u.s. goal ought to be, it ought to be to create a world order that we would like, if w
know, i would like to say i think president obama has some achievements with congress that he's not giving enough credit for. i think when history looks back, says that 30-plus million people ran into the health insurance rolls through his health insurance bill, that's going to be quite a change, quite a, you know, martin luther king said the moral law of the universe bends slowly, but it bends towards justice. eng there was a bending towards justice. there are things wrong with the health care bill, but you know what johnson would have said? he said that about the civil rights bill, a flawed bill. he said the important thing is to pass it. once you pass it, it's easy to go back and fix it. >> host: next caller from georgia. good morning to you. >> caller: good morning. thank you for the distinguished work for us all. >> guest: thank you. >> caller: yes. i wonder if you came across things in your research that suggested president johnson experienced moral compunction about the behavior at some point. it's striking he's so on the spot with the angels with civil rights and other
's in the same room, but it's not technically a meeting. hugh confessed that sometimes the bills move too fast, and the 72-hour/three-day rule, whichever you prefer, is meant to kind of stop that happening because that's politicians being politicians. and the, um, president obama sunlight before signing was a parallel promise. he's just at 66% compliance with the pledge to put bills online for five days having received them from congress before he signs them. and it's, roughly speaking, the bills to rename post offices get five days of sunlight -- [laughter] and the bills to spend huge sums of money or to change around the organization of our health care system, i'm not sure if that one did or not. but generally speaking, the more important legislation moves fast and doesn't get sunlight before signing, because a deal's been struck, and it's a very sensitive deal, and if we have to wait two, three days, the deal would be broken up by all the interests who care about it. that's congress saying we've got these decisions, you don't have them public. one of the reasons i like transparency is ideol
, but it is not technically meeting. you would confess that sometimes the bills move too fast. the 72 hours / three day rule, whichever you prefer, is meant to kind of stop that happening because that is politicians being politicians. and president obama sunlight before signing was a parallel promise that i have been tracking since the beginning. just at 66 percent compliance with the pledge to put bills online for five days and receive them from congress before resize and. and it is roughly speaking the bills to rename post offices get five days of sunlight and the bills to spend huge sums of money towards the change around the organization of our health care system, i'm not sure if that one did not. but in generally speaking, the more important legislation moves fast, it does not get sunlight before signing because the deal has been struck and it is a very sensitive deal and if we have to wait two, three days the deal could be broken up by all of the interests who care about it. that is congress saying, we have these decisions. you don't have them, public. one of the reasons i like transparency is ideolog
the congressional candidates and north carolina eighth district. contract a leadership style of president obama and mitt romney. the panel will include former congressman bart gordon, weekly stand editor bill crystal and former candidate john huntsman. we'll have live coverage on c-span2 beginning at 9:00 a.m. eastern. almost twenty years ago we broadcast one of the most controversial stories in our e years on the air. it was called yes, but is it . >> i was accused of being a -- someone lackingest threatic sensibility to appreciate the challenge nature much some art. in the twenty years, works the questions wort hundreds of thousands of dollars are worth hundreds of million. so what made everybody so mad twenty years ago? >> i discovered something that i had absolutely could barely believe. that when you question someone tastes [inaudible] than religion, sexual preference, it's something that goes to the very [inaudible] you say you bought that? sixty minutes on the career at cbs. walt tear cron cite and journalism today. sunday at 8 on c-span q & a. >>> i have all the channels, 1992 senate pl
or the time and unquestioned to both of you is president obama was roundly criticized for his you didn't bill that comment this summer and led the debate over how much credit government or business each deserve economic growth in america. that is what we want to discuss for the next eight or nine minutes. to kick it off i want to give you each one minute and share ideas. we will start this segment with miss kuster. how much credit does government or business deserve for economic growth in america? kuster: i believe it is the private sector that creates jobs. i have been in the private sector for 25 years and i have created my own strategy which is a consulting company for non-profit fund raising but i believe the government does create an environment for business to grow. that is what tax policy is all about. the types of tax breaks congressman bass voted for were encouraging the production of fossil fuels energy. i believe what we need to do is give incentives such as growing the economy here at home and incentives for shipping jobs overseas. we need to end the uncertainty which flows from t
and the possibility of the spike. >> host: jemison spartan bill, south carolina. good morning. >> caller: romney pays taxes in 2011 at a rate of pattern of 14%, and the obama camp sale that. they're the ones who just pretty much stated a min ago created a taxi. they're the ones who kept the tax rate going. they could've done something about it, but then i just complying with the tax code he created. how could clinton get away with claiming that the republicans were the ones who deregulated and created the real estate and financial problems when he repealed glass-steagall in 1899. that was the underpinning, and away, of of the whole problem. i would say it's a cheap wine or two because in 10 short years, all the big banks, almost all of them another. i just wonder how he can get away with that and i was one of the hallmarks that give a bump at bill clinton's speech. does he just not want to admit it? or does he know that people will care or following research this? how does it make a statement in front of everyone? >> host: maria bartiromo. >> guest: we are in political season, right? it's all politic
in congress but also across the land about what's going on. it's a nice touch-tone, read the bill is part of a broader push that all these efforts are a part of. i think when i look at the history of the issue, it goes back to the election of the president obama and the real energy he brought on the campaign trail in 2008 to the question of transparency and the kind of government i think we all envision. from my perspective by about 2010, that energy had kind of dissipated and a lot of efforts have gone toward a lot of things and we were not seeing that sort of dramatic transformation that a lot of us could visualize. we could imagine knowing what the power of data is but it wasn't happening very much. that caused me to do some work that i will describe here that resulted in some grades that i talked about. grading is a cruel art but sometimes it's a necessary art to communicate things. what i did was i looked at the problem of sort of lacking transparency efforts around 2010. it looked to me like maybe the transparency community hadn't communicated well enough to the government decide wh
that affirmative action bill and the civil rights bill? from what i'm seeing right now, it seems like it's just this backlash against the white community like obama has a war against white heritage of something. i don't understand it. >> host: gary johnson. >> guest: well, we should not discriminate, and i think government policies in the past have gotten us to a point where i really don't see that discrimination. so, i'm going to sign on to legislation repealing affirmative action because i think we have moved beyond that. but i'll just offer up a prediction again. obama, romney, we're going find ourselves with a heightened police state, find ourselves with continued military interventions that are going to result? we bomb iran, we're going to find ourselves with 100 million enemies to this country we wouldn't have otherwise had, and this unsustainable debt and spending, the day is sooner than later, and we all recognize that we have to address it, and yet we're arguing over who is going to spend more money on medicare when we should have an absolute raging debate and discussion over how we ha
to the game. you reduce u.s.a. action, which is the sub 10 supporting barack obama was late to foreign and late to get started. and late to raise money, more importantly. it was started by john sweeney and bill burton, who would come out of the white house. sean, who has served as chief of staff to rahm emanuel, the single worst title, chief of staff, chief of staff. and did a great job. and the two of them had left the white house to start his superpac and begin the process of trying to help barack obama get reelected. and it started out slow. the way to raise money is to go to donors that are interesting in helping the president, who were shot at interest in trying to help the president. and it's a very different fundraising strategy. it is for a lot of them you think about barack obama and the power of his campaign in 2008. what we know is how much of that is fueled by little donations, by people in this terms spending $5 or $3 or whatever it is in the ucs and the small donors. well come you can't do that. you are serta spending your time trying to go out and raise six figures, seve
the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if you work hard and play by the rules you should expect to be in the american middle class. it's basically what he's been saying. obama repeated it. and i just don't think that's na. i don't think it's political. you have work harder, study harder, learn and relearn faster and reinvent the rule naps is because we are in a very different work environment technology is making older jobs outdate faster and spin off new jobs. and they each one requires more education. and i just think if we're going it i think america is a huge advantage in the world. because the i think the world is going to be divided going forward between high imagination and enabling countries and low imagination enabling country. rethe highest imagination enabling country in the world. if you have spark of an idea you can go to delta in taiwan they'll design it. they'll get you a cheap chinese manufacture. amazon will gift wrap it for christmas. free lancer get the logo. they are commodities except this. that's no country that does better. the problem with this though, th
times" former editor of the "new york times" bill keller had an article in which he said, why shouldn't iran have the nuclear bomb? and then we'll do what we did with russia mutually assure destruction and president obama had said no, earlier we don't accept containment. we don't accept they should ever get to bomb and we will contain them. not at all. we will not let them get the bomb. but to have the former editor in chief of the "new york times" propose that, i said to myself, this is munich. this is chamberlain, this is substituting israel for czechoslovakia. give them the bomb, let them destroy. we can contain them. what is containment mean? that think don't kill us here had the united states, i guess. so i -- to me, that was extraordinary. just extraordinary. >> now -- i don't happen to believe that israel is going to do it on its own because there is such -- as to whether or not it's possible to do it on your own. and secondly, there's sort of a tip of the hat as it related to that when prime minister gnat yahoo! netanyahu said it'll take six months before they get their bomb, >> next, three former obama administration pentagon officials defend the president's foreign policy and national security record while criticizing mitt romney. moderated by former cnn, cnn contributor bill schneider, the discussion focuses largely on iran's nuclear program and america's presence in afghanistan. this event, which took place yesterday, runs about an hour, and we'll show you as of this as we can until the pentagon briefing scheduled at 2 p.m. eastern. >> struggling in, and you're encouraged to help yourself to coffee, food, whatever you need. my name's mike bennett, on behalf of my colleagues, jim kessler -- who's here somewhere -- sean gibbons and mika, welcome to another anti-politics press breakfast. before i hand it over to bill, i just had a couple of things we wanted to talk about relating to our work on national security. as mitt romney discovered on september 11th of this year, nothing has the power to shake up a presidential race like a change in national security. and that can be either an external event as we had in libya and egypt, or it can be a political
